CJK Visuals: 2015 Recap

business, personal, travel

This is about that time of year when you’ll find a ton of amazing recaps and “best of’s” from their 2015 weddings, engagements, editorials, and more on many photographers’ blogs! I figured I still have about half my weddings and engagements to publish on here, so those will come up on my blog later this year during the off season. So instead, I’m put together a little “best of” video from those times I’m NOT shooting an amazing wedding!


This year has been crazy, per usual, having shot more weddings in a year than I ever have before, travelled on more flights in a single year than every before, so I thought it might be fun to do a little numbers breakdown, inspired by fellow photographer, Katie Nesbitt’s cool “by the numbers” portion on her site! I’ve also thrown together a video of some clips I shot during a few of my longer trips in 2015!

Anywhoooo, take a look at the breakdown below and let me know if you’ll be heading anywhere I’ll be in 2016!! I’d LOVE to meet up and grab drinks, food, or shoot!

    All I can really think to say is, “TAKE ME WITH YOU!”

    But seriously, I enjoy watching your journeys so much and it has inspired me to take my own crusade next year. I’m still in the planning phases, but would love to pick your brain for tips and locations!

    Your video yesterday was EPIC!

    I love your life! This is so incredible!! We actually have a decent amount of overlap in our trips for next year (considering I’m only going three places!) but of course none of them are at the same time, boo!

  9. Holy Cow!! You accomplished a lot this year! That is great, I hope to accomplish all of this one day! Great job, I am sure you put in a lot of hard work this year.
